Personal favorite. Reddish beer with a strong raspberry flavor, some bitterness in the aftertaste.

330ml bottle from Cross Stobs Bottle Shop, Barrhead. Strong raspberry content, sweet with a well balanced ale background. As with many sweet fruit beers you wouldn’t want too many but this is very good.

Appearance: Pours out a dark reddish-hued body, fairly clear, and capped with a scant, near-white head.
Smell: An aroma that’s part tartish, part sweetish, and scented of raspberry, as one might imagine, and, thankfully, without that oft medicinal quality I sometimes identify with raspberry brews.
Taste: Sweetish and permissibly raspberry flavored, slightly tart, and with, perhaps, a perceived underlying breadiness. Low bitterness. Slight acidity. Finishes crisp.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Stood shoulder to shoulder with it’s cherry and strawberry based cousins for a tasting and, for me, it was the best of the Samuel Smith fruit bunch.

A nice fruit beer. Raspberry being the dominant flavor and aroma, but there are hints of pear and apple. Wheaty and yeasty as well. Mild with a medium body.

Hey great beer. Comes in a large bottle so sometimes you have to split it. a little sweet but that’s good in a beer now again. Have even tried it as a beer float with vanilla ice cream and it is delicious!

pink head reminded me of Lindeman’s Framboise. Some sweet malt behind lots of fruit in the nose. Nice body with a strong raspberry flavor and sweet finish.

Big brown odd shaped bottle. Lucious raspberry fruity aroma. Smells like many real lambics I’ve sampled. Cloudy dark looking beer with an alabaster pink head. Delicious raspberry taste amoung other ale attributes, fairly nice! For over 5%, hides the alky content very well. Enjoyable, perhaps a very nice holiday beer. Could drink this stuff all day. Fruity and friendly, a character that is lacking in most fruit beers which lack real fruit character. There is this slight hint of bitterness in the background that keeps you alert to the fact that it is an ale. Good tingle carbonation on the palate. Finish is quite good except for that average bitter ale bite building on the center of the tongue. Not bad overall and I found this to be a beer worth it’s $!

~Pours a cloudy light red color with thick creamy pinkish white head.
~Candy raspberry scent with an underlying malty wheat, somewhat tart.
~Tart raspberry flavor overpowers the base wheat beer.
~Light, somewhat frothy, fresh, clean and refreshing feel. Tart and sweet finish. Little bite on the tongue.
~Good fruit beer. Raspberry overpowers a bit, but good fresh flavor of raspberry. Great dessert brew!

Sampled from a 550 ml brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant pink-fuchsia with a huge dark pink head. The aroma was musty, tart and fruity. The flavor was tart raspberry jam with notes of sugar and must. The finish was medium length berry. Fairly full bodied. Very one dimensional but quite pleasant. Good.
